Charting a Sustainable Maritime Future Oceanic Trade:
The Maritime Industry is waterborne commerce – it's about moving people and goods over the water. Maritime is most everything connected to the sea or waterways throughout the world, especially in relation to navigation, shipping, and marine engineering. The industry has a direct impact on much of our everyday lives. Think about the oil that powers our cars, many of our vehicles, our electronics, the coffee we drink, the foods we eat, and the clothes we wear most come from overseas. The maritime industry is responsible for the transportation of goods, products, and people by sea. This includes everything from container ships, and oil tankers, to cruise ships and passenger ferries to smaller vessels like fishing boats.
